The Value of Angel Berroa

Angel Berroa has a .136/.174/.182 line in 22 at bats this year. He hasn't drawn a walk, only has one extra base hit( a double), and has struck out 6 times. Obviously his bat does nothing for us. So perhaps we have him for his speed? No. Berroa hasn't even attempted to steal a base this year. Hmm. Well his value has to be with his glove then right? Nope. In Berroa's 63 innings in the field his UZR is -2.5. He's allowed 2.5 runs more than the average thirdbaseman. (Over 150 games he would lose us 34.5 runs).So Berroa has no value with his bat, his feet, or his glove. Why is he on the roster then?

Well Joe Girardi says he prefers to carry 2 backup infielders rather than a 5th outfielder. I understand that, but why not use Kevin Russo then? Russo, a 24 year old second baseman, is having a fine season in Scranton, sporting a .355/.439/.398 line. Sure he has very little power (his 4 doubles are his only extra base hits for the year). But, at least he can get on base both by hitting himself on and drawing a walk. Russo won't be called up (he should have been long ago), because Cody Ransom should be back within a week or two. Ransom has played 11 games in Scranton on his rehab assignment with a .286/.381/.571 line. He has smacked two home runs and it seems like he is back to near full health. Hopefully we shall see him in the Bronx within the next week and Angel Berroa will hopefully be DFA'd and we won't see him on a Yankees roster again.
